Restaurant/Motel 60 KMS outside of Warsaw - Good or Bad Idea?

What do you think of the idea of opening a Restaurant/Motel 60 kilometers outside of Warsaw? With the possibility of adding a TIR stop in the future.

Let's say on the 79 going south
Or the 61 going north

Good idea or a bad idea? and why?

I don't know the roads but I'm guessing they are main routes in and out of Warsaw? Also what sort of market/audience are you aiming at?

Well I was thinking of anyone who is leaving the city and wants to stop for a good meal and cheap place to sleep. As well as any people coming into the city needing to take a break from driving. I don't mean cheap as in hostel cheap but let's say 90-120 zlotys a night with meals ranging from 12 to 25 zlotys. In addition I would think that a TIR stop would be beneficial because many drivers must stop after a certain amount time due to EU regulations.

Cheers and thanks for any input

If you're only 60km out of Warsaw then what is the likelyhood of someone stopping? Surely if you are that close to Warsaw, you would carry on driving into the city! Similarly, if you had not long left the city would you really want to stop after such a short drive?

However, I can also see the benefits. Some people may not want to eat/sleep in Warsaw and this may be more suitable for them. Having somewhere out of the city with less hustle and bustle might be more appealing.

I've seen I few hotels, motels, restaurants like this on the outskirts and around some other cities so I guess the concept works. I would advise making contact with some other places around the country in similar locations to see if they would be prepared to share some information with you.

After putting more and more thought into it I think that few people would actually stop for a nights rest if they were leaving Warsaw. What about the people that are on longer journeys from say Gdansk to Krakow and vice versa?
